FaLang
I am using this amazing tool for several months now. It is by far the best choice for multilingual sites, simply because the developer Stéphane is very good when it comes to support. Fast and very communicative.

EasyBlog
In fact it's impossible to place a negative judgement here. For me Easyblog does exactly what is expected. Of course there were some small issues but that's where their exceptional service comes up. I've never seen such a fast, friendly and high quality support before. They reply amazingly fast and even hack your code on the backend if necessary.
Thumbs up for the Easyblog team ! I hope you can keep this level of support.

RokGallery
I used RokGallery since day 1. On their website the demos simply look amazing and 'high tech'. However, as a serious photographer with lots of pictures and galleries you will hit against a wall of troubles/bugs and things that don't make sense.
For example: every good gallery software should make it easy to edit captions/titles on many pics together (listed on one or several page). With RokGallery it is picture per picture and VERY time consuming.
Also, it is impossible to recreate thumbnails for vertical images in a way that people's heads are not cut off. This should be basic functionality. So, in a RokGallery with vertical pics of people, the thumbs show headless people.
It is a fact that there is not much help to be expected on their forums for the more serious problems. Some of the moderators are really nice and want to help, but for some reason the complaints don't seem to reach the 'engineers'.
I followed all the upgrades, hoping for improvement but many months later, nothing changes at all. I finally decided to delete it and use another component. It was driving me crazy.
It is sad to see how such a new promising and modern piece of software in reality doesn't work like expected.
Again, good if you have one page of pictures, but useless for big galleries. You will waste a lot of expensive time.

SP Upgrade
After experimenting endlessly with jUpgrade (advised by Joomla) I was about to give up till someone pointed me to this tool. jUpgrade fails miserably because it changes the menu item and category ID's and also some of the aliases. SP Upgrade managed to keep everything intact and that was exactly what I needed. For complex websites with thousands of internal links SP Upgrade seems to be the only tool on the market that does the trick. No hassle, fast, straightforward and very easy for normal users.
It is well worth the 20 euros.
A big thank you to the developer!
